Not a month goes by without the weather hitting the headlines again. Heatwaves, storms, floods, lightning, you name it we’ve had it this year. To the rescue comes a new smartphone app from Allianz, ‘WeatherSafe‘.
The new app uses 3-hourly and 7-day forecasts supplied by MeteoGroup, one of the worlds leading weather forecasters. Read about the app here, or download it from either Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store (see links below).
